Creating art with recycling

Join Lisa Terreni to explore what you can make using resources from everyday recycling.

Support your tamariki to develop their creativity and confidence by making postcards, constructions with boxes, and a puppet theatre.

Working together provides lots of opportunities for talking and sharing ideas.
